FOOTBALL FRIDAY & ARC GIVEAWAY: Meet Ryan Blake from All Lined Up

It's that time again! It's Football Friday, and this week, I get to introduce you to the team manager for the Rusk University Wildcats, and sorta-kinda Carson's BFF - Ryan Blake.

Carson meets Ryan in the Rusk University football weight room. They hit it off, and Ryan takes it upon himself to help Carson try and achieve his dream of becoming the starting quarterback. He helps him lift weights, and sets him up to run extra drills with other players. Ryan is invested in Carson's future, and Carson is so thankful for his help.

As Carson's only real friend on campus, Ryan becomes his go-to guy for advice regarding Dallas. He also slips very easily into the role of wingman. Although Ryan is concerned about Carson potentially dating Coach Cole's daughter, he still tries to help Carson out by creating situations where he and Dallas can be alone - even if that means taking Stella out on a date.

Ryan is a cutie with a goofy sense of humor. He has great rapport with Carson and the rest of the team and aspirations to go into sports medicine. And he thinks he's super smart. :)

All Lined Up (Rusk University, #1)

(From Goodreads) In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.

Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.

But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.

Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated.

Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter.

And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.
